Artesian American Legion Auxiliary selects Americanism Poem and Essay winners

Each year, the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) sponsors an Americanism Essay Contest for students in grades 3-12, including students with special needs. Grade levels are divided into six classes. One award in each of the six classes will be presented in each division. Winners of the National American Legion Auxiliary contest will receive $50 and a $50 donation in the student’s name will be made to the Children of Warriors National Presidents’ Scholarship fund. National winners will be posted at www.ALAforVeterans.org after convention. The Americanism essay title for 2018 is “What can I personally do to promote Americanism in my school or community.”

The Artesian American Legion Auxiliary selected the Americanism poem and essay winners.  The first place winners are forwarded to the District 6 American Legion Auxiliary officers to be judged, and the first place winner is sent to the State American Legion Auxiliary Americanism officers.  The state first place winners are forwarded to the National American Legion Auxiliary headquarters for judging.
